Good Siegel & Shuster strips from 1939
These strips were published in newspapers in 1939 after the success of Superman in Action Comics in 1938. The original strips which Siegel and Shuster had shopped around to the various newspaper syndicates were chopped up and pasted into a comic book format in Action Comics #1. They were a bit more primitive than the work here. This is a good sampling of the later newspaper strips, and the pages of the booklet clearly date them as 1939 strips. Enjoy the first full telling of the tale.
